Track Name: Chasing Freaks
She says I'm always happy, I say it's happy genes, an you can wear them out whenever I'm around
Last night I went to sleep, and I woke up crazy, coz we don't go chasing freaks.
she says I wanna be happy, like they are in the movies, where every second makes you feel alive.
she asked me what are we doing, just staying in Sutton, coz every day is a day we can run away.

If you get me, come with me again, I promise you ten out of ten, we'll drive this car into the sun.
Or we can stay here and pretend, coz pretending is what I do best, I’ll cull my lazy reign.

You know you said it was easy, but you're always on my back, telling me things I lack, wrapped up in your loose change.
You said I’d better give up my dreaming, coz none of us are good enough, but you shoot down anyone,
that doesn’t think the same.
So if you wanna be happy, like they are in the movies, then I suggest you get the hell out of this town.

Big dreams they make you feel lazy, fall asleep in the same old bed,
Small town is all we are lately, make it get loud, make it get loud.

It kinda hurts what I wanna say, it’s my fault for leading you on, now we get burnt so much easier than we did before.
So I lied said my heart was brave, the best song that I ever wrote, you and me we are just the same, two kids who can’t even throw, all the sadness away.
Track Name: Loose Change
I said oh why does my heart hurt from dead love, she said you got to to admit you’re losing your fun,
I’m gonna waste my days and make you feel fine oh come on.

Come to mamma and I’ll make you feel new, I got the talk you need for a rainy afternoon, you know you look so good when you’re wearing that suit, keep trying to hold it together.

If my love won’t fill the space, take it off and I’ll fly away,
Always running from a different storm, everything that I do is wrong.
And it’s always gonna stay the same, spend my life looking for loose change, but if you’re happy I’ll be happy too,
Because we’re human and it’s what we do.

All my days, seem to be slipping away, these opportunities of ice turn into ennui clay. Now I’m not superstitious but this looks like fate, oh come on.
Begging you please for just a minute alone, coz If deceit was a disease, I’d be nothing but bones,
And you don’t want me to leave but I really gotta go.

I saw a change in a man that made me love my mind,
For every cut down plan there’s one that’s half its size.
Take a trip round the world tell them I love life,
If we don’t get far well at least we tried.
Track Name: Some Boys
All my days we’ve been chasing, the long road.
stay in bed going nowhere. The long road
Some boys like that.

All my cars end up broken, on this road.
Is it cool if I smoke here, on this road.

We have the same flaws, as our parents love, but that’s not our fault, that’s not our fault love.

And I know I don’t talk much, it’s safe to say that sometimes I’m boring,
you might say I’m a dull touch. Coz I don’t play happy songs.
Will I always stay in your house, coz you’re waiting for the day with my flaws.
say you’re feeling better this month coz I like alone but I don’t like lonely.
Track Name: Bad Blood
Sniff the bad blood, we’re getting thin, there’s no food in the fridge again,
It’s been like this since forever.
I’ve been thinking of travelling, packing bags up with emptiness,
And leave behind this awful weather.
Calm down you mess, you tragic end, won't you get better.

Man this year’s gonna break the mould, I got my car back on the road, and I’m dressed like it’s the summer.
Coz every cloud has a silver line, you say I write sad songs all the time but I’m man enough to admit I loved her.

Some friends I’ve lost since growing up, I guess you can’t keep everybody happy.
So I think of all the things I've got an that makes me happy.

Love waking up to some sunny room, Our lives spent balancing the bad and the good.
Love waking up on those days in June, Some dreams I have, they remind me of you.
Track Name: Whiskey Nights
This whisky’s never quite what it was but it’s getting me drunk.
Trailer trash speaks for itself yeah we could be dumb.
Forgotten what it’s like to breathe and what it’s like to have fun.
Nights spent watching televised dreams puts little holes in my lungs.
You’re lovely but you’re breaking my heart.
Old stitches you weaved you’re now pulling apart.
My happiness is a little grey, but that’s okay coz it’s gonna be a bright day.
Find some beauty in the chaos I swear I’ll grow some wings and you’ll never see me again.
Wahey.
Track Name: Mr. Big Casanova
Mother always stayed home drinking away, killing herself to sleep with little brandy.
No food in the fridge, she collapsed in the hall, let's take her to bed again little brother.
But it's not her fault coz dad's not around, he's out everynight mr big casanova.
and I know she gets lonely, coz I've seen her cry she fought back tears as if pride could save her.
oh I know you're alone and you hate it, so you smoke til your sedated,
I wouldn't wish loneliness on anyone.

The older I get, the quicker time gets, oh no there’s none left, what a waste.
Keep you in my head, I won’t forget.
I know you like it when I stay, I can tell you miss the company of a happy family, back like it was in '68.
yeah I'll try to come down, give you meaning to stick around, coz what's family if they can't be found,
Wouldn't wish loneliness on anyone.

Come G, come come now wake up, Oh no this is hell.
Track Name: The Weezer Years
They told me only losers get cold in the sun, man I love you but you’re losing your fun.
It’s been a long time since you hung out with us, I’m coming up.
I’m sure I’ve been here once before, coz I can hear them knocking at my door.
No I won’t give up today, coz I can’t behave.

Feeling muddy on a Sunday taking all my time,
cleaning up the ashes that were my mind,
I stood up on a hill to watch the world pass by,
Isn’t it funny how people live their lives.

Here’s to friends under the thumb, yeah we love you but you’re losing your fun.
It’s been a long long time since you, hung out with us.
Track Name: Real Talk
When I talk to my mother she says oh how I love you, but you're not the man I want you to be.
I spend my life under cover, with the angels and devils, and together we drink til we sleep.
So God if you're listening take the thought from my blistering mind for I'm blind to its means,
Because after all we're still living, I've got love with no limit, and that's a life worth living to me.

If I stay would you call me son, Coz I think I might be too far gone.
We’ll erase all that you've done, that's why they call it love.

I wake up each morning for my job in Carshalton, where I dream of catching the next plane,
But when I get to the airport, there's the fear in my stomach and the voice in my head that says stay.
All of this torment disappears with some rose, where we drunkenly vow to sail the world,
But by the morning the heroes we were are forgotten, and the promises made are old.

I don’t wanna hold your hand, when someday you’ll take it back,
But if we’re old then who the hell cares, at least we made it through today.
And If you leave, I will understand, maybe I’ll see you when you get back,
And you’ll find me on the same old estate, singing some birds are meant to stay.
Track Name: Tequila Nights
This whisky’s never quite what it was but it’s getting me drunk.
Trailer trash speaks for itself yeah we could be dumb.
Forgotten what it’s like to breathe and what it’s like to have fun.
Nights spent watching televised dreams puts little holes in my lungs.
You’re lovely but you’re breaking my heart.
Old stitches you weaved you’re now pulling apart.
My happiness is a little grey, but that’s okay coz it’s gonna be a bright day.
Find some beauty in the chaos I swear I’ll grow some wings and you’ll never see me again.
